Or, perhaps more hilariously, how many people have gotten "You've been
pre-approved!" credit card offers explaining how their role account
(e.g. "DALnet Hostmaster") has been carefully selected among hundreds of

*Someone's* obviously been mining the whois database and giving it to
direct mailers. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it were NSI.
